Your carbohydrate counting plan for appropriate blood sugar control is based on your body size, weight loss needs, medication needs, blood sugar readings, etc. IT is not a one-size-fits-all diet plan. Please see a diabetes educator and then use your individualized plan here at SP.

SP doesn't cater to diabetics, they have plans that work for prity much everyone but a diabetic - we're on our own as it currently stands with that here.

Best you can do is to see a diabetic dietitian and have him/her work out a meal plan with you that you will be able to follow.

You might check out the American Diabetes Association's web site - they do have meal ideas there plus a forum that might prove helpful to you.

Your 1600 calorie meal plan, should also be broken down into the correct amount of carbohydrates to have at each meal and snack. Have you worked with a diabetes educator on your meal plan needs???

Can anyone help come up with diabetic meal plans that comes out to be 1600 calories a day? If I did
Weight Watchers how many points does that average out
to be? This should also include 3 snacks a day. I am
really struggling here.
Thanks
